After catching Paul Thomas Anderson‘s hippie-dippie Inherent Vice (’14) I decided firmly and finally that PTA should never adapt another Thomas Pynchon novel. Because I absolutely hated the way Inherent Vice made me feel, plus I couldn’t understand at least 60% or 70% of the dialogue.

Alas, Jordan Ruimy is reporting that Anderson is now shooting another Pynchon adaptation, Vineland. It’s lensing in Northern California (Eureka, Acata, Humboldt County) with Leonardo DiCaprio as Zoyd Wheeler.

Instead of using the book’s 1984 setting, PTA’s film has apparently been re-set in the present.
